"Dramawebben" : Selecting technical solutions for digitization (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is predominantly qualitative. It is also descriptive to a large extent and not oriented towards hypothesis-testing. The study aims at studying what has influenced digitization of old Swedish dramatical works through the Dramawebben projekt, while focusing on the technical solutions. Four different data collection methods have been applied. Interviews and a questionaire with open-ended questions were the two primary tools. A document analysis and observations were applied as well. Examples from earlier research to relate to questions about digitization as an institutional and societal practice are presented. These earlier studies also explain the major aspects often related to the digitization process. This study particularly takes up types of digitization, the "Effective Technical and Human Implementation of Computer Systems" (ETHICS) as well as the "Normalisation process theory" (NPT). A more extensive theoretical framewok focusing on particular concepts and terms relating to preconditions for digitization has also been empasized. Technical, social, organizational as well as other preconditions and influences on digitization have been presented in theory. Previously neglected copyright-free and hand-written Swedish plays were to be made more accessible and collectively preserved through the Dramawebben-project. The project has grown to emphasize even improved usability. The main technical solution of the project is the development of the web-based digital service "Dramawebben". TEI1-coding has most recently been adapted by the project group as a technical solution to facilitate easier and more effective retrieval from the collection. Those involved in the project have witnessed both obstacles and possibilities but Dramawebben´s strategy for quality assurance has led to accomplishments that have yielded a wider scope of users. In the wake of different and sometimes opposing standards and recommendations as well acceleratingly more advanced and complex technologies, there has emerged at least one major question during this study: How can planners guarantee long-term projects for the digitization of cultural heritage? While the implication of “project” may be “time limit” and whereas “long-term” may be difficult to define, we should not forget that making accessible and long-term preservation are fundamental for digitization.
